"Who's got a taste for adventure?" Victor reads from the clue, and he's taking it. "That's so gross!" he sings out in Mandarin upon getting a load of the wares. Nice of him to say that so the people making it could understand him. Tammy tells him not to even look at it, but the big white sign cards in English over everything are clearly not designed to help anyone with that. Victor's about to start popping larvae, but he's relieved to learn that it's all going to be fried first. "Please fry it well," he says as it's dumped in the sizzling wok. He half-wonders if there's ketchup, and when he gets his plate he takes it over to a bench to enjoy it sitting down. "I'm so proud of you, but not envious," Tammy says from a safe distance. Victor gets chewing.
Kisha and Jen are still wandering around that sidewalk, conscious of both looking ridiculous and being lost. "I looked a hot mess after a while," Kisha says. Being a princess is not all it's cracked up to be, Kisha.
Margie and Luke emerge from the opera house and begin their own quest. "When we walked outside, Luke said, it's not usually that far," Margie interviews. "U-Turns have to be close to the Detour," Luke adds through her. Can't accuse Luke of not knowing his Race.
Jaime and Cara are still in search of a taxi on the busy highway that passes in front of the National Opera, but every one of them is occupied. "It's cause China's so damn populated, that's why there's no fricking empty taxis," Jaime complains. She tries to flag down some passing bicyclists for help, and when that doesn't work, says, "Surely they know the name 'taxi' and they're playing dumb." I would agree with the first part of her statement after hearing Tammy and Victor hailing cabs with a sound like "tak-shii" for the last three episodes, but as for the second part, perhaps it's the bicyclists who think that Jaime's the stupid one for not being able to find one on her own. Besides, if these locals were big cab users, they wouldn't be on bicycles, would they? Duh. They run up to one that's empty and hung up in traffic, saying, "Emergency, emergency!" But the cab drives away without them. "This is it for us," Jaime says. "This is how you lose a race because we never fucking have a damn taxi. Ever. Ever!" Oh, if only she knew they were only a mile and a half from where they're supposed to be, they could just walk there. They'll be doing more walking than that later in the episode anyway.
